James Bond and the Arab League

Y-net in English claims that the Iranian news agency (in Farsi) claims that Saudis, Jordanians, Palestinians and Syrians all ganged up with the Israelis to kill that fellow from Hizbullah, Imad Mugniya, a while back.

Is this possible? How would I know? I'm not a spook. It certainly wouldn't easily fit into the prevailing meta-narrative about good guys and bad guys in the world in general and the Mideast in particular, so on that level I rather hope it is true even if we now need the Iranians in order to know who's who. Also, the world of spooks is a strange and spooky place. Having said all that, I doubt we'll ever know, but I expect the story probably isn't true, unless of course it is.
